PCE’s general contracting services provide you with day-to-day oversight of the construction site, provide constant, detailed communication about the progress of the project, and manage any necessary vendors.

A good general contractor will provide a combination of the following:

  1. Knowledge: It is obviously crucial that whatever company you hire is both experienced and skilled in their trade. So whether it’s proper planning, familiarity with codes, or adaptability in the event that a problem does arise, it is crucial that you hire someone with the expertise to guide you along the way.
  2. Relationships: A good general contractor is more than a set of skills, however. In many ways, it is about who you know as much as what you know. A contractor with a long track record will likely be able to provide your business with experienced laborers and valuable industry-specific connections to keep your project running smoothly.
